2007-2008 Mercedes CLS 63 modifications options

Im thinking about purchasing a 2007-2008 CLS63

What are my options for modifying the engine. Is it a supercharged V8 or NA 6.2L a lil confused on this part.

I currently have a 700hp Turbo M3 but know nothing bout benzes.

So whats out there? can you gain much by chipping it? Obviosley nothing like a supercharged or turbocharged engine.

The CLS55 AMGs were supercharged. I know very little about what can be done to a 63 NA engine. The 63s have more grunt with HP, but a tiny bit less torque.

According to all the reviews the 63 is only quicker to 60mph and they are very much identical in straight line performance.
